December is here!

Wow! Where has the time gone this year?  it's December and just over three weeks till Christmas. I spent a lovely day in London at the Foodies Festival in the Old Truman Brewery and then wandered through Old Spitalfields Market. So much food everywhere that looked delicious, a shame I have no sense of smell but I could taste it on the air.

Our challenge this week on the One Stitch at a Time challenge blog is 'Anything Goes with Lace' and what a great prize we have. Its all these gorgeous images in the November 5 pack:-

Here is the perfect set of images for all your Christmas projects including a beautiful sentiment too.
Please find our very few rules for entering our challenge here and also have a look at our Facebook page where there is always a great challenge for using the Stitchy Bear Digital images, just click on the link.

For my card this week I chose Stitchy Bear's image called 'I'm Sorry' and you can find her here. The perfect image for when you need to send someone a hug or just to say sorry. I know I will use this image time and time again.

I've used a piece of Linen Closet paper to the front of my card and cut one panel from the Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles in a toning blue Co'ordinations blue card stock.  After colouring her I cut along her wings back a little and placed the next size die down under her wings so that they were free.  Sadly, with the low light levels we are having at the moment the way she sparkles just doesn't show. Some Venise lace and a few Wild Orchid flowers and pearls to decorate.  The sentiment is self generated and cut with a Spellbinders Tag die that I've had for many years.  The cord on my little tag was given to me by my Red Hat friend Marilyn, the perfect shade of peach.
